See a solution process below:

Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is: $y = \textcolor{red}{m} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

Where $\textcolor{red}{m}$ is the slope and $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$ is the y-intercept value.

Substituting the information from the problem gives:

$y = \textcolor{red}{- 4} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{1}$
